Toronto, ON Paul McLorinan of King City is thrilled after winning $50,000 in the February 4, 2017 ONTARIO 49 draw.

“I enjoy playing ONTARIO 49 because it gives me the chance to win $2 million for just a dollar,” shared Paul while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto where he picked up his winnings. “I used the ticket checker to check my numbers and was caught completely off guard. ‘$50,000 plus three Free Plays’ appeared on the screen.”

Paul rescanned his ticket three times. “Each time, I saw the same thing. Then, I started thinking, ‘Where did I buy this ticket?’ I finally remembered and headed straight to that store to validate my ticket and celebrate with the retailer who sold it to me.”

Paul already knows what he plans to do with his windfall. “It didn’t take me long to figure out what I will do with this win. My daughter is getting married this fall and I would love to give her a money gift. And a portion of the win will be shared with the church I belong to. Winning the lottery gives me absolute relief and joy. I am still trying to process all that has happened,” concluded Paul.

The winning ticket was purchased at Rexall Pharma Plus on Rutherford Road in Woodbridge.

Winning the lottery gives me absolute relief and joy.
